2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

University Centers


Central Washington University has seven campus locations in addition to the residential campus in Ellensburg. The University Centers offer upper-division (300- and 400-level) and graduate-level coursework leading to baccalaureate and master’s degrees. The University Centers are designed for students who have completed their Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) associate degree or most of their general education requirements. Day and evening classes are offered to accommodate the needs of time- and place-bound students. Visit us at www.cwu.edu/welcome/cwu-campus-locations.

For more information about the University Centers, contact Melanie Palm, Director of Operations, University Centers and Continuing Education, at 509-963-1456 or PalmM@cwu.edu.

UNIVERSITY CENTER POLICIES

Admission
Students interested in entering a university center program may submit an application at www.cwu.edu/admissions.

Registration
Continuing students follow the same procedures as noted in the registration part of this handbook. Be sure to study the procedures for MyCWU. Students not admitted to a center program must register in person during open enrollment. Non-matriculated students may register for classes on a space-available basis.

Advising
General transfer advising and specific program advising is available by contacting your university center for an appointment. Final official transcripts must be received for articulation of all transfer courses.

Tuition
See current tuition rates and fees or refer to the Registrar Services home page at www.cwu.edu/registrar. Continuing Education courses are offered on a self-support basis. The self-support tuition schedule is separate from full-time tuition and fees. Visit the Continuing Education web site at www.cwu.edu/ce/. Tuition and fees are subject to change.

Student Services
Information for services that accommodate physical- and learning-disabled students, career placement, or counseling is available by contacting your specific university center.

Financial Aid
Students attending a university center are eligible to apply for financial aid. You can apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. For more information about financial aid, visit
www.cwu.edu/financial-aid. All students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to begin the process.

Veterans
Information on veterans’ benefits is available through the Veterans Center on the Ellensburg campus, by calling 509-963-3028, or by emailing va@cwu.edu.

Library
Access to library services is available to students and faculty at the university centers through the CWU Brooks Library, which is available by logging on to www.lib.cwu.edu/. Assistance in acquiring reference materials may also be obtained by calling 800-290-3327. On-site library resource centers are also located at CWU-Des Moines and CWU-Lynnwood.

Textbooks
Textbooks may be purchased through the Wildcat Shop at cwubookstore.collegestoreonline.com. You may also inquire at your individual center for specific information.

Final Exam Schedule
University Centers’ final exam dates are different from the Ellensburg campus schedule. University Center instructors establish their own finals calendar. Therefore, University Center students should check with the instructor to verify the appropriate date and time or refer to the syllabus.
